Fantastic first night from Atlanta...
...truly from start to finish. First set is a remarkable exhibition of the extent of the grateful dead's song selection by 1990. Three covers, respectively, from 1930 (walkin' blues), 58 (big river), and 63 (me and my uncle). Originals first played in 1970 (candyman, to lay me down), 75 (music never stopped), 79 (althea), 82 (touch), 88 (victim), and 89 (little light).
Highlight of the first set comes with the trifecta to close it out: victim->to lay me down (midi-solo 4:35-5:45)->music never stopped. As for the second set, as good as the 3/15 China-Rider is, this one to open is even better (Without a Net). Post-space meanders into the ultimate Mr. Fantasy->Hey Jude (WAN) that makes its way through a solid Truckin' to yet another beautiful Stella Blue (following the one at the Knick) and a rocker Sugar Magnolia to wrap things up. To encore, we're treating to It's All Over Now, Baby Blue, yet another reminder of Dylan's classic line (paraphrasing) that they -- GD -- did it better than him.
Hard to argue with all the five stars, but I'm going with four. Start of a phenomenal -- too often overlooked -- ATL run to close out Spring 90.

Thinkin about Jerry
I was hoping to hear some good Dead today, this is it!Gonna listen to and jam lots of Jerry songs on this day. I love the beginning and the end of of the Brent era, great show, exellent sound and lineage of course. Thank you!
last stop an the most amazing start to finish tour of my 87-95 career... also my 19th birthday. Walking in with my crew I was asked what do you want to hear? "well I know Im getting a ship but otherwise I want either a stella, to lay me down or baby blue" all four plus one of the hottest Fantasy>jude's ever.
One good party from start to end...
(thanks again charlie)

Great Show & Recording
Wow, a great show, recording, etc. All good, except the Truckin' was out of place IMO, & they didn't seem to acknowledge April fool's day, but otherwise, a great show from start to finish!

Fall 89 through summer 90 was my best ever time with the band. Got on the bus in 84.

Strong back end
Jerry really does some nice work on this Stella. To say that you can crank these boards is an understatement! The beginning of the last stand of the last truly epic Grateful Dead tour.

OH ME OH MY
Shows like this are why we love the Grateful Dead. Perfect musicianship & a perfect remaster by C Miller.

My period is going....swimmingly?
Absolute perfection has been achieved with this upload. Flawless. One of a kind MIDI solo during To Lay Me Down. China>Rider and Mr.Fantasy are the versions from Without a Net. Both sets are standard setting Spring 90' masterpieces. The Charlie Miller uploads are basically "X marks the spot" when you have more than a few to choose from, for those just starting to poke around.
